We’re pretty nuts! Native to the Middle East, pistachios are one of the oldest flowering nut trees- evidence suggests we were eating them as early as 7000B.C. Legend has it that the Queen of Sheba decreed pistachios an exclusively royal food, forbidding commoners from growing the nut for personal use! Well, because we are the Royal Nut Company, we decree that these nuts should be shared by everyone!
Famous for it’s stunning green kernel contrasting with a thin skin of pink and purple and an easy to open shell. We carry premium Australian pistachio kernels that are desired for their exceptionally bright green colour, as well as being naturally delicious.
